7th Golden Rule - Copyright

Don’t copy material without permission

It is a criminal offence to download or share an electronic copy of a film, music, book or software in breach of the producer's copyright or respective licence conditions.

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Software

Having P2P file sharing software on your computer may result in inadvertent yet illegal file-sharing, as some P2P applications are known to share folders containing media by default.

If you need to use P2P software for legitimate purposes, make sure it is registered with IT in accordance with the University’s Systems Security & Network Access & Management Policy, otherwise it will be blocked.
